Belo Horizonte, my city, in Christmas time

This is just a short post to show my city, Belo Horizonte, in Christmas time. Brazil is a huge country, but people when hear the name Brazil, the only thing that springs their minds are Rio de Janeiro, and beaches. I live in a beautiful city, and there are no beaches here. Belo Horizonte is the capital of Minas Gerais, in the Heart of Brazil, very close by Rio and São Paulo. The Portuguese spoken here in Belo Horizonte, together with Rio and São Paulo, is considered the standard Brazilian Portuguese. It is a city famous for the bars and its food is considered one of the best in the country, many famous writers and poets are from this Region, Gimarães Rosa and Carlos Drummond de   Andrade are some examples. I am very proud to be born here.
As it can be see in the photos, we are not as marvellous as Paris or London's decoration, but we are a very "young" city compared with those centenarian cities, only 115 years, we still have time to improve, but for sure it is very beautiful.

If you are wondering to come to Brazil, put Belo Horizonte in your list!!!!
